Pati travels to the northern part of Sinaloa and the town of El Fuerte, one of Mexico's "Pueblos Magicos" or magic towns. El Fuerte was founded in 1563 right at a bend in the Fuerte River. Now a quiet colonial town, for over 300 years it was the most important commercial and agricultural center in northwest Mexico. After a walking tour and a stop at the Hotel Posada Hidalgo to try their famous cauques, a local type of langoustine, Pati creates a few lobster recipes in her kitchen inspired by the experience.
